"Our research interests lie in studying the function of FcgR’s in autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. The Affimers we’ve isolated have shown remarkable specificity and have proved useful not only as detection tools, but also for blocking receptor function. Furthermore, crystallisation of Affimers with the receptors have identified allosteric inhibitors. Overall we’re delighted with the results and hope to develop them into therapeutics."
